Ughh....another cyst on my forehead and it feels like two on top of each other (apparently a double bonus for me) any ideas?? I'm FINALLY going to see a dermatologist in the next two weeks and I was also wondering any ideas on blackheads? I seem to have a growing number on my forehead and cheeks and when I pop them, they always become puss filled and ten times worse.

for blackheads, salicylic acid works for me...and the derm will go the antibiotic and topical route, give it a good try


also, for me diet impacted my acne, dairy and gluten were the big triggers....why not try to ditch dairy for a month and see if it helps


and have you tried the regimine here on acne.org?  it has helped many and may help you avoid the antibiotics that you will be prescribed


good luck to you, there are options!

Firslty, it seems your skin is irritated, I assume that your have been touching or picking at your skin. I understand it can be difficult not to, I believe that irritating your skin and touching it can more than not be aggravating the issue. Use a gentle cleanser and non comedogenic moisturiser in the mean time until you see the dermatologist.  Also it may be wise to look into the regime. All the best.
